Markets

Stay current and up-to-date with every ebb and flow of the markets, with articles from the Dent Research team. Our editors cover all markets, foreign and domestic, and all things trading, including: investment strategies, stocks, economic volatility and risk.

Readers of Economy & Markets should know the importance of investment systems. Our editors lay out several benefits of a well-defined, data-driven, and rules-based investment strategy, on a regular basis.

It’s often said in sports that “the best defense is a good offense.” When it comes to investing and stocks, this means focusing on companies that produce floods of cash and that “pay us first.”

The Dent Research team also examines the rise (and falls) of the world’s currencies, which of course includes bitcoin and blockchain, as the cryptocurrency market has taken the world by storm in a relatively short period of time.

Gold was a great standard for monetary systems up until the industrial revolution, but today, it isn’t representative of the information-based economy and it’s too costly to be a medium of exchange. But so many still hold on to gold’s value for a number of reasons, which is why our editors follow gold’s every move.

Real estate is different than other consumer sectors of spending. It’s obviously not consumable like food or clothing. But it’s not like a durable product either, like cars and washing machines. Real estate, with the exception of natural disasters or human insanity (arson, wars, etc.), tends to last forever.

Lastly, the Dent Research team covers many of the leading foreign markets, where you can learn all about the global banking crisis, China and what’s going on in many other foreign markets.

Beware the Naked Companies

The markets peaked in early October, and since then something remarkable has happened. Investors have lost their drive to buy-the-dips! Instead, we’ve transitioned to sell-the-pops, and that’s not a good sign. For decades, investors typically drive stocks higher after a week...

Want a Free Home? Japan Can Help

Man! Sometimes I sound like a broken record. If only more people listened to me, things like Japan’s latest stunt wouldn’t come as such a surprise. And because you DO listen to me, imagine how smart you sound now. I imagine you...

The Emerging Country that Flunks the “Acid Test”

Several weeks ago I sent you a video commentary on how important money velocity is and why Dr. Lacy Hunt is the master of this concept, which I now call the “acid test” for developed and emerging country economies. The...

The Falling Supply of Homes Leads to Rising Prices… and Falling Sales

Did you watch my video two Fridays ago? If not, check it out here. I explained how gold bugs are giving you dangerous advice about gold as an investment. But gold isn’t the only investment that people mistakenly make because...

Will Housing Be the First Domino to Fall?

Early this week, the market shook off Thanksgiving blues and started with a bang! Stocks bounced sharply, and Treasury yields moved up in tandem. Last week’s start was a different story. Stocks fell sharply. Treasury bonds were mostly steady; despite the sell-off...

Have Gold and Bitcoin Seen the Worst of Their Bubble Bursts?

You know I’ve been fighting the gold bugs for a long time. Gold is an inflation hedge, not a deflation hedge. Turn to gold for safety during a deflationary period and you’ll get your ass handed to you on...

[Video] Gold’s Little Secret

There’s a crisis coming. We face massive loss in net-worth-to-GDP when the double bubbles in stocks and housing go tits up (I plan to talk to you more about this on Monday, so watch out for that email from me). But...

Sharp, Deep Crash Possible in Next Few Weeks

I’ve warned for years, and with increasing frequency of late, that the first crash when a major stock bubble of this magnitude finally tops is 42% in the first 2.6 months. That’s the average of seven bubble crashes in the...

Pot: One Thing We Can All Agree On

Thank goodness it’s finally election day! Maybe we’ll get a reprieve from all the idiot, hype-infested political advertising. This election season has done something I thought was impossible. It’s made me long for traditional advertising, where retailers tell me that...

Treasury Bonds Aren’t the Only Ones Spiking

I’ve been waiting for the recent spike in T-bonds in the U.S. A similar spike occurred in the early 1930s crash. Ten-year yields first jumped from 4.5% to 5.5% in 1931 and then fell all the way down to 2%...
